Yum!! This recipe is an old favorite, I usually use cream cheese but this time I replaced the cream cheese with Joan of Arc Fresh Cranberry Cinnamon Goat Cheese and it was divine. We didn’t notice the difference and now I am considering making a traditional cheesecake using goat cheese to see if I can pull it off. Something tells me, it will be a success.
